- 2 slices white bread
- 1/2 tbsp. plus 1 tbsp. butter, softened
- 5-6 slices deli ham
- 2 slices American cheese (or your favorite cheese)
Melt 1/2 tbsp. butter over medium heat in a small frying pan. Once melted, add ham and cook until browned on both sides, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat.
Spread remaining butter on one side of both pieces of bread. Heat a pan to medium-low heat. Place the first piece of bread butter side down in the pan. Put the cheese on top and then top with the ham. Place the second pieces of bread, butter side up, on top of the ham.
Allow to cook for 2-3 minutes or until the first side is brown. The trick to perfect grilled cheese is to cook it for a long period of time over medium-low heat to allow the cheese to melt without the bread getting brown too quickly.
Once the first side is browned, flip the sandwich and cook the second slice of bread. Once brown and cheese is melted, remove from heat and serve with your favorite chips!
